Bortar Group, Turkey

At the “Bortar Collective Cooking Factory” of the Bortar Group located in Izmir, Turkey, every day 70.000 meals are prepared and delivered by the company´s own vehicle fleet to business centers, factories, schools or hospitals in the region of Izmir. With a capacity to serve up to 100.000 meals per day, Bortar Group has grown to be Turkey´s leading brand in catering.

The company´s aim is to reliably supply their customers with freshly cooked high quality meals on a daily basis. As quality of the prepared meals plays the most important role, the company established their own cattle farm for the production of meat and dairy products as well as their own olive grove to ensure the availability of high quality ingredients.

The crucial role of quality is also reflected in the company´s values and mission, emphasizing in particular customer satisfaction, reliability, hygiene standards and tradition in combination with the use of modern technologies. For the preparation of food in the “Bortar Collective Cooking Factory”, high quality and hygiene standards apply, which is why also the machines used to process the food need to comply with these requirements. Preparation of the food is done at the 5600 m2 “Bortar Collective Cooking Factory” by 1.400 employees, which has a capacity to deliver up to 100.000 meals a day to 350 different locations including factories, businesses and event locations in the region of Izmir. To be able to prepare such large quantities of food every day, the machines need to work reliably in continuous operation. 

Currently, the KRONEN equipment at Bortar Group consists of two washing machines GEWA 3800V, two belt cutters GS10 and a spin-dryer K50-7 ECO as well as a peeling machine PL 40K. KRONEN machines have been part of Bortar´s equipment for vegetable and fruit processing already since 2005. With KRONEN, the company has found a partner that emphasizes quality just as much as they do - leading to a continuing business relationship. 

“Since 2005, we have achieved excellent results due to our business partnership with KRONEN regarding food processing technologies. We successfully transferred technological developments to our growing scale of business.” summarizes Hasan Küçükkurt, chairman at Bortar Group, the long-term cooperation of the companies.
